Tips for Finding Quality LTL Carriers
As there are a number of LTL Carriers to choose from, you may find that it can be very difficult for you to be able to tell which of them are likely to give you the best service for your money. You should start by looking carefully at the reputation of any company you are thinking about hiring. Look at things such as what others say about their record of on time deliveries, although no LTL carrier will guarantee a delivery date, they should still deliver each shipment within a reasonable time frame.
You may also want to take a look at each LTL carrier’s claims to damage ratio as this is a good indicator of the percentage they pay in cases where your freight is damaged while in their hands. The industry standard is about 1.25 to 1.3%.
